Like most of you know... I'm a lil' bit in Love with Motorcycles... The way I see it... the Big RV, the fifth wheel... is a vehicle that makes the Lil' RV... bein' my Motorcycle... shine a lil' Brighter!
Seems to me, having such a place to bunk, makes settin' up in an area, for a season, a whole lot cheaper... an important consideration, for a poor mountain cowboy... who's tee total "Gone"... on Motorcycles! :o)
Anyhoo... Heidi decided last fall, after a whole lot of years of no interest... that she should ride too... Uh... OK...
She wanted to know, what I thought... and I have to say... I refused to answer the question... and I wasn't bein' rude... The thing here is this... Riding a Motorcycle is a really personal thing. and let's face it... "Things" can happen... If one of those things should happen... I don't want to be the guy who talked, anybody, into climbin' on a scooter... and splittin' the wind...
That choice, and that motivation, boys an' girls... has got to come from the person who's butt is gonna be keepin' that motorcycles saddle from gettin' dusty!... and NOT 'cause they got Talked into it by anyone... no matter how good their intentions... and especially NOT by me!... no matter how much I love the Freedom of the Road... On a Motorcycle.
So... That said... I familiarized her on my Old Bike, "Slick"... last fall. I thought it would be better if she had a little rubber on the asphalt under her belt, before she took a class... but some folks learn better from "Neutral" people, rather than "Family"... but the weather and other stuff got in the way of 'class' just then... So it had to wait till this spring.
She signed up with Abate of Colorado for a class they had at the local community college this past weekend.
Started out with a Thursday night "classroom" session... and then moved to the parking lot all day Saturday and Sunday... I guess Saturday was a lil' tough...
Truth is, they had 'em tryin' to master the "Slow" stuff... and I'd have to say that balancing as "Slow as you can go" is maybe one of the toughest skills to master... and I don't believe much of anyone can learn that in a weekend... but she hung tough and Sunday afternoon... got her "Ticket"...
She just has to go down to the state now and pay her $$$ money for her Permanent Motorcycle endorsement... kinda cool...
Hmmm... while she was finishing her Motorcycle Training Class... I put my knees in the wind up Poudre Canyon... again... uh... it was kinda cool up there too! :o)
